Scotland's Economic Performance


About the Inquiry

The Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee is holding an inquiry into Scotland's economic performance: trends, challenges and future developments. The inquiry will focus on the following areas:

  • GDP growth and productivity
  • Inequality and labour market issues
  • Inclusive growth

The remit for the inquiry is:

To examine Scotland's economic performance since 2007 and understand the reasons for recent trends and divergences in performance between Scotland and the UK as a whole, other regions/nations in the UK, and other countries in the EU. The inquiry will also identify challenges and opportunities facing the Scottish economy over the next ten years and understand what action is required to make Scotland's economy more inclusive, innovative and international.
